A Bloggy Play in Penguin Town
(Not to be confused with A Foggy Day in London Town.)
A play in one act
Act I, Scene I
Husband is in shower. Wife is reading USA Today at the desk in an overpriced hotel room in downtown (here pronounced “don-ton”) Pittsburgh.
Bathroom door opens. Hubbin emerges, wearing a towel wrapped around his waist, face covered in shaving cream, hair dripping wet.
“You know, I was just thinking about your blog. A thought occurred to me in the shower. When you call me the Center of the Universe, are you being sarcastic?”
Wife looks up in wide-eyed wonder. She speaks, deadpan:
“No. Huh-uh. Not at all.”
Husband nods in acknowledgement. “Cool. I didn’t think so.”
He returns to bathroom, razor in hand.
